00:00<D-side>thats an assumption. let me check which package actually owns the file
00:01<D-side>yes, thats owned by the mythtv-themes package for my distribution.
00:01<D-side>out of the box it had errors that wouldnt let it be used, but those are documented on the users list.
00:01<Chutt>dum de dum de dum
00:01<D-side>apparently the xml is f'ed in the config file. easily fixed.
00:07<josephk_>shaddap chutt
00:07-!-josephk_ is now known as josephk
00:12<josephk>chutt must pay for his lack of mistakes
00:14-!-_Nero_ [~Nero__@mdobossy.student.Princeton.EDU] has quit [Read error: 60 (Operation timed out)]
00:16<Chutt>lack of mistakes?
00:20<josephk>you heard me:)
00:22<cmorgan>does myth just pick a show if there is a conflict?
00:22<cmorgan>or record neither?
00:23<Chutt>it picks if you don't tell it otherwise
00:23<josephk>bah...its magic
00:23<Chutt>essentially, yes.
00:26* Captain_Murdoch likes not having that empty box in the lower right on the playbackbox screen....
00:27<Chutt>captain_murdoch, oh, cvs and the website are on the same machine =) cvs is a user-mode linux instance running on it
00:29<dopez>is www also in a uml?
00:29<Captain_Murdoch>I don't have video preview or preview pixmap turned on and I didn't like seeing that empty area on the playback box.
00:31<Chutt>nope, www's on the main box
00:31<Chutt>only real thing vulnerable on there is phpnuke
00:32<dopez>shouldnt be too bad since apache runs as nobody on most distros
00:32<dopez>ehh, and it's only phpnuke and the phpnuke dbase that could be hacked ;)
00:41-!-D-side is now known as D-sleep
00:42<mikegrb_>uml is pretty cool
00:43<mikegrb_>I came across a provider the is doing uml virtual servers...
00:43<mikegrb_>was pretty impressed with the money to services ratio
00:43* mikegrb_ hangs out in the #uml channel on oftc
00:44<mikegrb_>heh I guess that 'splains Snow-Man's presence there
00:45<dopez>im playing with uml also, it works pretty nice, a bit slower but still the box has hardly any cpu load with 5 uml's :) (all doing pretty much nothing tho)
00:47<Chutt>yeah, the cvs uml doesn't use much resources
00:48<Chutt>the mailing lists are the only thing on that machine that makes much of an impact
00:48<Chutt>unless apache and mysql go crazy like they do occasionally
00:48<term>I need to learn how to setup uml.
00:49* josephk is back (gone 05:44:35)
00:49* josephk is away: I'm actually away...I don't believe me either

02:13<Chutt>'let's recompile everything!'
02:14<Morph>my LUG was showing off MythTV today at an expo...everyone was impressed :)
02:14<Chutt>heh, cool
02:15<Morph>couldnt show live tv because lack of cable..nor cable guide because zap2it seemed to be not working when I set up the box thursday, but the various modules were a huge hit.
02:16<Chutt>might not have grabbed the latest xmltv version for the zap2it issue
02:16<Morph>yeah..its possible..I'll check it out once ive recovered :)

04:20<poptix>php is 'teh suk'
04:20<poptix>an excellent way to open yourself to vulnerabilities
04:21<FryGuy>php is great.
04:22<poptix>php has always been crap
04:22<poptix>it started as a way to work around CGI restrictions
04:22<poptix>'personal home page'
04:23<poptix>then they changed the name to 'php hypertext processor', which was a poor name change
04:23<poptix>kinda like a double negative =p
04:23<FryGuy>php is better than perl
04:24-!-Viddy [] has joined #mythtv
04:24<poptix>FryGuy: really
04:24<poptix>is that why all the best exploits are for php? =)
04:24<FryGuy>exploits like what.. poor programming?
04:27<poptix>if 90% of the php out there is poorly programmed, perhaps it's because of the language
04:27<poptix>things like a lack of placeholders
04:27<poptix>is what makes php worthless

09:11<DrZimmerman>can mythtv benefit from a dual cpu sys?
09:12<D-sleep>i would think so
09:14-!-D-sleep is now known as D-side
09:26<DrZimmerman>"Full support for Hardware MPEG-2 encoder cards" is also the creative dxr3 supported?
09:26<D-side>the dxr3 is a DEcoder
09:26<D-side>and no, theres no support for that card yet, if at all.
09:27<D-side>it'd be interesting if there were, as those can be had for next to nothing.
09:30<DrZimmerman>can the pvr250/350 also decode?
09:32<o_cee>the 350 does
09:32<o_cee>and everyone says the tvout is excellent
09:33<o_cee>alpha drivers still, but it's getting better all the time
09:33<DrZimmerman>atm ihave also a pinnacle pctv, can this card also use the encoder on the hauppage card?
09:34<o_cee>don't know what kind of card the pinnacle is
09:35<warlord-afk>I still get the -350 to crash the system hard...
09:35-!-warlord-afk is now known as warlord
09:35<warlord>in particular when I'm in LiveTV and using the EPG.
09:35<sfr>afaik, the encoder can only be used for the pvr350's own inputs.
09:35<o_cee>hope the new things from tmk will fix things :)
09:37<warlord>o_cee: well, the new things from tmk should fix the encoder firmware timeouts. it's unclear if it will fix the hang I see.. I think there is still a deadlock somewhere, but I'm only guessing.
09:37<o_cee>at least there's progress ;)
09:38<warlord>a stable encoder would be REALLY GOOD.
09:45<warlord>my hope is that tmk will have that this coming week.
09:47-!-holger [] has quit ["Client exiting"]
09:47<o_cee>one can only hope:)
09:47<D-side>eventually i'm going to need one of those cards.
09:47<o_cee>btw, that tinny audio thingie people are talking about, is that related to the 350 only or the 250 as well?
09:48<o_cee>i'll get one soon
09:48<sfr>haven't had this problem (yet), but i'm using an older version of the dirver afaik.
09:53<o_cee>me too
09:53<o_cee>better not to upgrade at the moment
09:54<sfr>he, don't fix it if it ain't broken
10:01<DrZimmerman>o_cee: the pinnacle pctv has a bt878 chip
10:01-!-o_cee [] has quit [Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer)]
10:01-!-o_cee [] has joined #mythtv
10:01<DrZimmerman>o_cee: the pinnacle pctv has a bt878 chip
10:01<DrZimmerman>o_cee: but i think it cannot encode
10:02<sfr>no, it can't. mythtv will do s/w-based encoding with these cards
10:04<DrZimmerman>ouh :/
10:04<DrZimmerman>i will also buy a second card, so i can use a pvr350 for recording/encoding and the pinnacle for live tv viewing?
10:05<DrZimmerman>is this possible?
10:05<DrZimmerman>bline: yes?
10:05<bline>why would you get a 350 to use something else for viewing?
10:05<DrZimmerman>hmm has the 350 two tuners?
10:06<bline>the 350 has a hardware encoder, if you don't want that get the 250
10:06<DrZimmerman>i know
10:06<bline>no, it has a tvout though
10:06<bline>and does hardware encoding
10:06<DrZimmerman>what i will say is that i would like to recording in the background on a different channel and view live tv
10:06<DrZimmerman>yes i know this
10:06<DrZimmerman>but the pinnacle cannot encode
10:08<sfr>DrZimmerman: s/w encoding needs a rather powerful CPU depending on the resolution. But you could that.
10:09<DrZimmerman>yes but i thought i dont need a hw encoder for live tv viewing?
10:10<sfr>it's still needed. mythtv isn't as simple as xawtv, due to it's timeshift feature.
10:10<bline>what is a pinnacle?
10:11<sfr>DrZimmerman: oh, not necessarily a h/w encoder, but encoding is needed.
10:11<bline>DrZimmerman: thanks
10:11<DrZimmerman>sfr: so i need two pvr350 to view and record at the same time?
10:11<DrZimmerman>bline: np
10:12<bline>they sell all kinds of things
10:13<sfr>err, no. you need two tuners. having h/w encoders enables one to use a less powerfull cpu. but if cpu isn't a problem one can also use s/w based encoding.
10:13<bline>ahh, pctv, it's just a tuner
10:14<DrZimmerman>bline: jep
10:14<bline>pvr250 and a pvr350, one for just recording, the other for both
10:15<DrZimmerman>sfr: my htpc is a athlon tb 1ghz
10:15<DrZimmerman>sfr: so not realy strong
10:15<bline>s/w encoding doesn't have such a high compression either, so you will need a bigger drive
10:16<bline>and imho the quality isn't as good as h/w encoding
10:16<warlord>DrZimmerman: well, a pvr350 for one tuner + tvout, and pvr250 for the second tuner
10:16<DrZimmerman>i see
10:17<DrZimmerman>ok i need to go, im bbl
10:17<bline>DrZimmerman: the problem with using the 350 (atleast the problem I have with it) is you lose GL support, which means the visualizations in mythmusic will not work
10:17<warlord>both the pvr250 and 350 have h/w mpeg encoders
10:17<sfr>bline: on the tv-out?
10:17<DrZimmerman>bline: i have in the system also a gefo4 mx with tvout
10:17<bline>sfr: right
10:18<bline>DrZimmerman: yes, but you will have to switch inputs to it
10:18<warlord>DrZimmerman: yea, but the pvr-350 tvout will be significantly better.
10:18<bline>so it means hooking both up to the tv
10:18<bline>yeah, el suckage
10:18<warlord>DrZimmerman: with myth you do NOT need to use the same card for input and output.
10:18<bline>but if you don't mind living without GL
10:19<DrZimmerman>warlord: i know
10:19<DrZimmerman>warlord: but when the tvout from the pvr350 is better, then i wil use it
10:19<DrZimmerman>so, now i realy need to go, cu guys later
10:19<DrZimmerman>(and girls)
10:19<warlord>IMHO it's SIGNIFICANTLY better than my nvidia with tvout.
10:19<warlord>Except when it crashes hard.. :(
10:35<bitbyte>when you have multiple tuners, how do you select which one to view "live"?
10:35<bitbyte>channels are mapped to a given adapter?
10:37<sfr>you don't, mythtv will always use the first one available, except if specific channels are only available through a spec. tuner card.
10:38<bitbyte>if you are using a client only machine that doesnt record, cna you view "live" tv from another machine that has a tv card?
10:39<sfr>doing that right now
10:41<warlord>note that once myth chooses a tuner for livetv, you can ONLY get channels on that tuner. it wont automatically change tuners if you ask for a channel that only exists on another tuner/input
10:42<bitbyte>how do you get it to go to the other card that has different channels?
10:43<sfr>make the one busy? i.e. ask it to record
10:43-!-cmorgan_afk is now known as cmorgan
10:43<warlord>that's one way -- or asking myth to record a show that's on the other tuner and then watch the recording as it's being recorded.
10:43<bitbyte>cuz i'm planning on building one with an HD card and a 350 in it
10:43<sfr>well, there's always room for improvement ;)
10:44<bitbyte>so tahts it, once it picks yer stuck with that card?
10:44<sfr>warlord: the better way probably.
10:44<bitbyte>til you reconfigure?
10:44<warlord>I'm sure Chutt would accept a patch that lets the backend change encoders if you ask for a channel that isn't available on the current one.
10:44<bitbyte>and if i were a programmer id' be happy to do one
10:46<bitbyte>thats kind of a big drawback tpo multiple tuners
10:47<bitbyte>cna more than one machine view live tv from one card at a time?
10:47<bitbyte>since it's really playing back a bufferd recording
10:47<warlord>well, it's far more important (to me) to be able to record multiple programs at one time..
10:48<bitbyte>i dont watch live tv all that often
10:48<bitbyte>but if i've got an HD tuner anda r egular one in one machine, it'd be nice to be able to watch them both
10:50<sfr>i seem to remember a posting that said right now you can't use a pcHDTV card together with a different tuner card
10:50<bitbyte>i had too, but thor as well as others in here said it should work
10:51<sfr>oh great
10:51<bitbyte>so which source is more definitive?
10:51<sfr>thor most likely
10:52<bitbyte>orblem is that few ppl use hd, so theres not a lot of experience out there
10:54<warlord>lots of people have pvr cards, tho...
10:55* warlord needs to "fix" how the pvr-350 live-tv epg works. I think I have an idea how to do it..
11:17<Captain_Murdoch>anybody else on current CVS (meaning within the past few hours)
11:20<warlord>what seems to be the trouble?
11:20<Captain_Murdoch>compilation problem. fixed though, but think it's a bug in cvs.
11:21<warlord>but in cvs? or bug in cvs version of myth?
11:22<Captain_Murdoch> is down right now for some reason (apache is zombie status and I don't have root to fix it). somebody committed this:>buffer); and I think it needs to be this: videobuffer[i]->buffer. gcc gives an error with the original way.
11:23<Captain_Murdoch>it's a vector
11:23<Chutt>old g++
11:24<Captain_Murdoch>ahh... ok.
11:24<Captain_Murdoch>that sux
11:24<Chutt>they're equivalent
11:24<Chutt>well, [] doesn't do bounds checking
11:24<Chutt>but that's not a worry here
11:24<Chutt>and apache on cvs should be back up
11:25<warlord>good morning, chutt. :)
11:25<Chutt>captain_murdoch, can you fix it in cvs, then? =)
11:25<Chutt>my tree is a tad on the broken side at the moment
11:25<Captain_Murdoch>think there are many people out there using pre-3.x gcc like me.
11:25<warlord>hopefully the weather in cleveland is as nice as it is here -- at least until the storm hits you later today.
11:26<Captain_Murdoch>ok, will do. already have the fix in my tree but wanted to ask about it before committing.
11:26<Chutt>what's that?
11:26<warlord>that stuff that happens on the other side of that clear, hard surfaces in your walls..
11:27<Chutt>ah, in the room with the big yellow light
11:27<warlord>er, those clear...
11:27<warlord>Yea, right.. That! ;)
11:27<Chutt>heh, bbiab
11:27<warlord>The big yellow light that hurts your eyes if you look at it too long. ;)
11:29<Captain_Murdoch>fix is in CVS.
11:32<Captain_Murdoch>cd today && cvs update && patch -p0 < delete_storm.patch && cvs commit
11:32<warlord>Chutt: I was considering changing videoout_ivtv to use videoout_xv for the EmbedInWidget parts (to get the pvr-350 to get the old-style live-tv EPG and PiP working). Would that be a reasonable approach, you think?

11:56<Leno>Hrm... having compile troubles with videoout_ivtv.cpp (compiling 0.12)
11:56<cmorgan>stuff about ']' undefined?
11:56<Leno>videoout_ivtv.cpp:58: error: syntax error before `[' token
11:57<Leno>running gcc 3.3.2
11:57<cmorgan>should get newer version of myth
11:57<warlord>cmorgan: uhh, are you sure that's the problem?
11:57<warlord>0.12 should build fine.
11:58<Leno>Is there a patch for 0.12? because that is what my backend runs
11:58<cmorgan>warlord: i never got .12 to build for me for that reason
11:58<cmorgan>although maybe its the ivtv driver version?
11:58<warlord>What's line 58 say?
11:58<cmorgan>i thought the files that were in error were actually in myth
11:58* warlord doesn't have 0.12 to check
11:58<cmorgan>so couldn't see how the itvt version would make a difference
11:59<cmorgan>line 58 will be an ioctl to ivtv
11:59<warlord>cmorgan: do you have an ivtv-based card?
12:00<warlord>Leno: do you?
12:00<Chutt>you need cvs.
12:00<Chutt>because you're running debian unstable, and the glibc maintainers are incompetents.
12:00<cmorgan>warlord: i've got a pvr-350
12:00<cmorgan>Chutt: its not a glibc issue
12:00<Chutt>yes it is.
12:01<Chutt>you're telling me that you know more about this than i do?
12:01<cmorgan>i'd like to suggest that it is in linux/include/asm-i386/ioctl.h
12:02<Chutt>that's a glibc issue
12:02<cmorgan>define _IOR(type,nr,size) _IOC(_IOC_READ,(type),(nr),(_IOC_TYPECHECK(size)))
12:02<Chutt>since the kernel headers are part of it in debian.
12:02<cmorgan>i'm running a stock kernel
12:02<Chutt>no, you're not
12:02<cmorgan>not using debian headers afaict
12:03<Chutt>you do know that what's in /usr/include has absolutely no relation to what kernel you're running, right?
12:03<cmorgan>this is /usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386/ioctl.h btw
12:03<Chutt>that doesn't get included
12:03<Chutt>at all.
12:03<warlord>cmorgan: take a look in /usr/include/...
12:03<Chutt>so it has absolutely no relevance to this.
12:04<Chutt>don't fucking argue with me about code issues.
12:04* sfr notes to self: never argue about code issues with Chutt
12:05<Chutt>the issue is that the debian glibc maintainers decided in their infinite wisdom to use pre-2.6 kernel headers as the exported headers in /usr/include.
12:06<Chutt>which breaks a whole lot of stuff.
12:06<Chutt>the entire point of having a kernel header set in /usr/include is to have a stable set of headers that doesn't change from kernel to kernel
12:06<cmorgan>oh alright
12:07<warlord>god forbid the linux kernel itself have a stable interface from version to version...
12:07<bitbyte>ya, can't be havin THAT
12:08<josephk>you have angered Chutt...prepare to be smoted
12:09<bitbyte>did you just invent a word?
12:09<josephk>because smitten just doesn't sound right:D
12:09<cmorgan>Chutt: thanks for the info, must have mistook the compile options somehow
12:10<josephk>I am so smat, I am so smat
12:10<warlord>"quiver in your boots because you are crunchy and good with ketchup"
12:13<josephk>MythTV: Don't fucking argue with Chutt about anything...bizniznatch.
12:14<warlord>there is a big difference between arguing and telling him he's wrong. I think arguing is ok.
12:15* josephk waits for chutt to make a mistake
12:16<warlord>josephk: it does happen periodically, but dont hold your breath ;)
12:16<[M-M]>that'll never happen :)
12:16<Chutt>as long as you're right :p
12:16<sfr>josephk: that could be quite boring
12:16* josephk has been waiting a long time already
12:16<warlord>Chutt: of course. ;)
12:16<warlord>Chutt: so what do you think about my videoout idea above?
12:16-!-Drikus [] has joined #mythtv
12:17<Chutt>i doubt it'll work
12:17<Chutt>for the epg, you can't resize the video display
12:17<Chutt>so all you can do is make it fully opaque
12:18<warlord>well, that's why I was going to try to use videoout_xv to get the little image in the corner.
12:18<Chutt>can't reinitialize the output stuff mid-playback
12:18<Chutt>since you'd essentially have to start playback all over again
12:19<Chutt>pip should be relatively simple
12:19<Chutt>just need to convert the buffer you get to rgb and copy it into the osd frame
12:19<o_cee>was just going to ask that, is pip working with the 350 (and a 250)?
12:19<warlord>well, doesn't pip swapping require reinitializing the video?
12:20<josephk>o_cee...want to get it working?:)
12:20* warlord was thinking of having the videoout_ivtv call into videoout_xv, instead of trying to replace the class..
12:20<Chutt>it doesn't swap =)
12:20<Chutt>it just changes the channels on both cards
12:21<warlord>Oh? Hmm...
12:21<Chutt>and it wouldn't be that simple
12:21<warlord>That implies you can't PiP to a channel that's only available on one card.
12:22<Chutt>since videoout_ivtv is tied to the ivtvdecoder class
12:22<Chutt>and can't be used with the software decode class, and vice versa
12:23<o_cee>then beeing timeshifted and using pip isn't a good idea?
12:24<warlord>so, let me take a different tact (at least with PiP) -- what are the issues involved in changing the encoder-in-use during livetv? (assume the same backend)
12:24<Chutt>you basically have to stop playback and restart it
12:24<Chutt>would need to ask for the different encoder, but that's not too difficult
12:25<Chutt>and it really wouldn't be that time consuming, should be as fast as a channel change
12:26<warlord>well, at least I now understand why PiP "swap" seems to "slow" -- it's performing two channel changes on me! :)
12:26<Chutt>in fact, it'd be really similar to the way it goes from watching live tv -> watching an in progress recording
12:27<josephk>you mean crashing?:D
12:27<Chutt>that crashes?
12:27<o_cee>not anymore
12:27<o_cee>for me at leats
12:27<Chutt>there, got a good start on the keybindings support code
12:28<warlord>Oh, speaking of watching an in-progress recording (/me is full of issues today ;)... Have you noticed that there are ff issues when you try to go beyond the point when a recording-in-progress stops?
12:28<Chutt>i've never been able to reproduce that, but it's been mentioned before, yes
12:28<josephk>well it did for me...but I tend not to tell anyone since I don't want chutt yelling at me for something I did or didn't do:)
12:29<warlord>I haven't figured out when it happens.. However..
12:29<warlord>I was able to get a bunch of:
12:29<warlord>2003-11-18 00:47:33 Did not find keyframe position.
12:29<o_cee>warlord: what happens? one time last week when watching a in-record-recording, it suddenly jumped to the beginning of the file again....
12:29<o_cee>scared the hell outta me since it was in the middle of 24 :)
12:30<warlord>o_cee: that's what what I see. What I see is that at some point after the recording is finished I can no long FF.. (Actually I mean forward-jump-by-30-seconds, but..)
12:31<warlord>Chutt: I'm wondering if the code that grabs keyframes and jump locations doesn't get refreshed as the recording progresses, or doesn't get refreshed just after the recording completes?
12:32<Chutt>after the recording completes
12:32<Chutt>ah, it should just ask the database to fill in the rest of the table then, but i bet it doesn't
12:33<warlord>If I pause, save-location, ESC, ESC, Enter it will happily ff again.
12:33<warlord>Yea, that's my guess -- it's not refreshing the data from the database "periodically".
12:34<Leno>alright... I found a patch for videoout_ivtv.cpp on the mailing list, to work around the debian crap. now I get this: videoout_ivtv.cpp:109: error: invalid types `int[int]' for array subscript
12:34<Chutt>well, when the recording is in progress, it just asks the backend
12:34<Chutt>leno, just use cvs mythtv.
12:34<Chutt>it's not an issue there.
12:36<Leno>Can I use a cvs frontend with a 0.12 backend?
12:39<Chutt>captain_murdoch, hey, why'd you bump up the lib version?
12:41<Leno>is the CVS server up?
12:43<Chutt>it's never gone down
12:43<Captain_Murdoch>added vars to programinfo and changed wire protocol
12:43<Chutt>captain_murdoch, yeah, but you didn't change anything in the library =)
12:44<warlord>besides, do you need to change the lib version more than once between "releases"?
12:44<Captain_Murdoch>maybe I was sleepy. programinfo is in libmythtv right
12:45<Chutt>the version in libmyth is only for libmyth =)
12:45<Captain_Murdoch>ahhh... ok. been a while. sorry about that.
12:45<Captain_Murdoch>well, I added methods to that the other day in uitypes
12:45<Chutt>no problem, i just bumped it up mysel and was looking to see why it was already at the version in my source
12:47* Captain_Murdoch makes note to self to not cause excessive recompilation by updating lib version when unnecessary.... :)
12:47<josephk>thats not a mistake...thats a happy little tree
12:50<Chutt>i still can't decide between database or xml file storage for keybindings
12:50<Chutt>i think db will ultimately be easier on me, though
12:51<warlord>Chutt: perhaps xml for the defaults and db for overides?
12:52-!-ChaosExiguum [] has joined #mythtv
12:52<Chutt>that's going to be tough because of plugins
12:53<Chutt>so the defaults should be in the source
12:54<Chutt>so small an amount of code, but it took a couple hours to get it right :(
12:54<Captain_Murdoch>are preview pixmaps working for mpeg2 files?
12:55<Chutt>just generated a bunch
12:55<warlord>Chutt: that's extremely elegant!
12:56<Chutt>it doesn't work any other way
12:56<Chutt>and it's fairly nasty =)
12:56<Captain_Murdoch>I've got a few recordings where they don't show up in either mythweb or mythtv and they're all mpeg2 recordings that I made last week. they're the only mpeg2 files I have right now also and all are broken in that regard. must be a problem here somewhere.
12:56<Captain_Murdoch>play fine though.
12:56<Chutt>captain_murdoch, do they have seek tables?
12:57<Chutt>no seek table, no preview pixmap
12:58<Captain_Murdoch>no, just realized it's because the backend that recorded them isn't up currently but the master override stuff lets me play them fine.
12:58<Chutt>err, silly xchat
13:00<Teflon>xchat is silly indeed at times
13:00<josephk>silly Chutt, X-Chat's for kids
13:00<Captain_Murdoch>yep, change hostname in recorded table and pixmaps are generated. put that on my TODO list to check into sometime.

15:36<_rkulagow>chutt: would you take a patch to the Fix Conflicts screen that would add a "4" option that _only_ shows conflicting recordings on top of the 1-All, 2-Important 3-Recordings options?
15:38* Captain_Murdoch wishes there was just a 'toggle view' key that cycled through the different views rather than taking up space for "1-All 2-Important 3-Recording, 4-etc."
15:39<Captain_Murdoch>like the 'only conflicts' idea. then we could potentially make a way to start the screen in a certain mode. so a theme designer could make an "all scheduled recording" button on the menu and a "conflicting recordings" button, etc. if they wanted.
15:44<_rkulagow>ah, right, and underneath it's the same code, just with a different default view mode.
15:45<isaac__>i have a dumb question: if you have seperate backend and frontend boxen, the backend's CPU is only used while recording, and the frontend's is only used while viewing, right?
15:45<isaac__>(this is what i assume)
15:46<warlord>isaac__: well, the backend cpu is used for I/O, but yea.
15:46<_rkulagow>backend CPU will still be used to send the file to the frontend.
15:46<isaac__>well, apart from network use. heh.
15:46<isaac__>i'm moving the tuner to this box then :D
15:50<Captain_Murdoch>_rkulagow: yeah, the code is already mostly there, just need a way to say "startup in this mode" and a key to cycle through the various modes.

16:21<FryGuy>can someone explain how the record duplicates feature works? I've got the box unchecked but it still records them
16:21<Captain_Murdoch>Myth considers duplicates items that match exactly in title, subtitle, and description. did those 3 fields match exactly?
16:22<warlord>It's a flag of whether to check the "recorded" table or "oldrecorded" table.
16:22<FryGuy>subtitle was blank though
16:22-!-cmorgan is now known as cmorgan_afk
16:22-!-Drikus [] has quit ["toedeledoki"]
16:22<FryGuy>but the descriptions matched
16:22<warlord>FryGuy: right, which means it will ALWAYS record it (because an empty subtitle implies 'every episode is different')
16:22<Captain_Murdoch>FryGuy: that's why, if one of the 3 is blank it's considered a non-duplicate currently. we've discussed ways to make it work differently but nobodies got around to coding it yet.
16:23<Captain_Murdoch>I have a cron job that copies the description to the subtitle if the subtitle is blank for shows I record. and vice-versa for if the description is blank.
16:23<warlord>now that the 'duplicates' selection is a choice it may be easier to add additional options.
16:24<FryGuy>well I looked in the source to find the db query but it seems to look like it shouldn't record duplicate with empty subtitles
16:24<Captain_Murdoch>I posted a message a week or two ago that described a way to design it and people thought it would work good, but I haven't had time to code it and nobody else has either that I know of.
16:25<FryGuy>oh I didn't see that one
16:25<Captain_Murdoch>oldrecorded.subtitle IS NOT NULL AND oldrecorded.subtitle <> '' AND program.subtitle = oldrecorded.subtitle
16:25<warlord>FryGuy: an empty subtitle implies "not a duplicate"
16:26<FryGuy>i don't understand why that is, but ok :)
16:26<Captain_Murdoch>cause some shows have the same description for different episodes but never fill in subtitles.
16:26<FryGuy>oh I see your post
16:26<FryGuy>I did a search a week ago but you hadn't posted it yet
16:27<Captain_Murdoch>that would give you the ability to pick what to match on on a per-scheduled item basis.
16:27<FryGuy>even if there was a "don't record" in mythweb that would work too
16:28<FryGuy>but that feature only works for ones with a subtitle
16:29<Captain_Murdoch>maybe by the time we get to 0.13
16:30<FryGuy>i need to get off my butt too and fix the patch I wrote for getting rid of an infinite loop

23:23<warlord>hadees: check the program guide.
23:23-!-hfb [] has joined #mythtv
23:23<D-side>i'm wondering what the difference is between the CL1000 and the other (less expensive) EPIA-M with nehemiah core
23:23<D-side>i.e. which should i buy
23:24<D-side>though now i'm just wondering if a pundit is a better choice.

23:30<Leno>I think I have it
23:31<Leno>But I really need to map a key on my remote to escape
23:34<mikegrb_>SarahEmm: I'd say grab a backtrace
23:34<mikegrb_>SarahEmm: maybe incompatibility between the version of mythweb and mythbackend
23:35<mikegrb_>but a backtrace would probably be nice as mythweb shouldn't be able to cause this
23:36-!-flyer [] has joined #mythtv
23:36<SarahEmm>i emerged them both (running gentoo) at the same time..
23:36<SarahEmm>how do i do a backtrace?
23:37<warlord>SarahEmm: that's described in the FAQ

23:43<mikegrb_>I guess a webpage is popular if it gets 2,600 hits in a week
23:44<SarahEmm>alright, i must be an idiot, but i can't find the FAQ...
23:44<mikegrb_>the how-to rather
23:44<warlord>SarahEmm: sorry, go to mythtv homepage, click on docs, search for "gdb"
23:45<SarahEmm>ahh, ok :)
23:47<Leno>So, any way to remap keys in mythtv? or am I going to have to get the xbox-ir module playing nicely
23:48<SarahEmm>ahh, okay.. i'll get a backtrace out tomorrow then, thanks :)
23:48-!-SarahEmm [] has left #mythtv []
23:48<warlord>Leno: no, not yet.
23:49<Leno>warlord: Ahh, that's cool. Anyone here happen to be running Xebian 0.5.1 (latest) with a stock kernel and a nice usb-xboxir.o they want to send my way?
23:50<mikegrb_>Leno: try #xbox-linux on
23:50<mikegrb_>probably have a better chance that way
23:50<warlord>anyways, g'night all
